If you mean the one with the young lady who goes up and kisses the old man (no, stop thinking that ;) ) then it looks remarkably like Cromer Beach, although I can't be sure.

Definitely not in the UK.

The unit certainly looks like a 2 car desiro classic - can't place the livery though.

Some sort of DMU of the kind you'd find in Germany or the Netherlands or somewhere like that, that's for sure. It seems to have the number LB 127, if anyone would like to look that up.

* Ah, that'd be it, yes.

Ah, thought I recognised it!

Gilleleje is on a little private railway that serves the outposts of northern Sjaelland. Those DMUs do street running too, when they reach Helsingør...

Slightly off topic (sorry), but where's thetrainline.com one with Black Lace filmed? Looked a bit like Marylebone to me but I'm no expert -thanks!

Seriously guys, I work there. It is *platforms 5 and 6 at Marylebone* :roll:

So platforms 3&4 at Birmingham Moor Street, yeah? :lol:

Out of interest, why on earth did Specsavers go all that way, when they could've made it here? Perhaps they were refused permission?

They have some Opticians in Denmark (http://www.thisisguernsey.com/tag/specsavers-denmark/), I've only seen the advert once but I don't remember any dialogue *between the people on the platform), so maybe they've done one advert that can be dubbed into various languages?

As far as I can remember, the only dialogue is "Hi" and "Sorry".

Would be quite easy to get Danish actors to film English and Danish versions I guess.

They do indeed, the rather impressive building in the background of the first photo is Helsingør station
